The DC Bloodlines Podcast: You May Call Me Doctor Mist!

Rolled Spine Podcasts published on

The ancient immortal African mystic Doctor Mist was introduced in a cameo on the last page of 1978's The Super Friends #12 before continuing into appearances in The Super Friends #13 & 45-46 before officially forming the Global Guardians in DC Comics Presents #46. We cover these comics to varying degrees, but our primary focus is the supposed true story of "Nommo," appended to tales starring Zatara and Zatanna. Is Dr. Mist one of the most powerful and important figures in the history of the DC Universe, or a sad and lonely fraud? You decide, and you can follow along with our reading of 1988's Secret Origins #27 at The Secret Origins Podcast.

    Thanks for another un-Mist-able episode. Dr Mist doesn't bother me in the least as a stereotype, most everyone in comics was back then - he's the stereotype of a 7000-year-old magician.

    I liked the music, but it didn't seem to fit the story or his character, and it was a tad distracting, especially given the accent you were putting on (how come you fret about doing a cod-Asian accent but not a cod-African one?).

    How about a sequel with some Primal Force talk?
